"Honey Bees of the Venus Star"
A good teacher assigns homework to the students, then provides them an example.
Now, the BUffalo Goddess instructs us to activate the Earth Medicine Wheel learn more <O>
Her sister the Bee Goddess, Bhrameri Devi, provides a superb example for all of us wise Earthlings at Earth School.
Bee Prepared!! A beautiful documentary project is now incubating! Through this movie, we join a troupe of modern-day bee priestess "melissae" who care for hives of honey bees and flowers. Now, they embark upon a pilgrimage to explore the ancestral honey culture of Crete (thriving around 4,000 years ago) in preparation to visit the land of the Maya where archeology shows evidence of reverence for the bees hundreds of years ago. The "melissae" pilgrims will exchange teachings with modern-day Mayan bee shamans who care for sacred honey bees called "Melaponia" that have no stinger and produce medicinal honey!
When we retrieve memories of our ancestors' harmonious ways, we inspire beautiful visions of what is possible.
In this manner, we are seeding the collective consciousness to ensure the positive potential of the Aquarian Age.
Please enjoy the Bee Goddess's 6 minute video teaser.
May the Buzzzzz bee with you!
The "melissae" womyn practice respect as they ‘walk the path of beauty’. For instance, before stepping onto the shore of Crete, they petition the spirits of the land for permission to be there and for divine guidance during their stay. All along their journey, the womyn demonstrate ways to conduct ceremonial practices at sacred places during auspicious alignments. It’s rumoured that in ancestral Crete, Summer Solstice was celebrated as the New Year when the golden honey was really flowing! For thousands of years, harmony of the natural world has been the domain of the honey bees. At several temple sites, archeologists have uncovered amazing gold bee pendants. The womyn travel with an intention to delve deeply into the past through meditations with these sacred objects. One of the 'melissae' is a skilled psychometrist. She will hold the bee pendants and 'read' the stories of the ancestral honey cultures.
The womyn 'happen' to meet a western astrologer who's led her students to Crete to observe Venus's return as the evening star. Arielle has written a book to describe the little-known phenomenon called the "Venus Star". Very few Earthlings are aware of an inspiring fact of life . . . . . a 5-pointed star is perpetually being drawn by Earth and Venus around the Sun every 8 years as the planets ‘meet’ while circling in their respective orbits. The points of the star are actually the times when Venus returns to be the evening star or alternatively the morning star in our sky. And, most importantly, this ‘Venus Star’ is in accordance with the Golden Ratio of harmony.
What about the relationship of honey bees to Venus? On her exploratory journey to Maya land, a forager scout ‘melissae’ was told matter-of-factly by numerous people that the honey bees are a precious gift sent to Mother Earth from her sister, Venus. As well, a Mayan scholar showed her this connection of the honey bees and Venus portrayed in the images and glyphs of the Madrid Codex. The bee priestesses and Mayan bee shamans will conduct ceremonies together with intention of restoring harmony and beauty. They will observe Equinox with a ceremony at the temple called Chichen Itza – to attune with the serpent of light that moves down the temple stairway on the first day of Spring and Autumn. Was this serpent somehow inspired by the Crete snake priestesses who's statuettes can be still seen in the museums?
Of course, the 'melissae' pilgrims will be looking up at Grandmother Moon and cultivating her waxing-waning cycles in advantageous ways through ceremony.
